I rarely blog about a specific eyeshadow but 'Smog' from the original Urban Decay Naked Palette is becoming one of my favourite eyeshadows. When I first got this palette, I didn't really deviate from the lighter toned eyeshadows that can be found at the left hand side of the palette but one day out of curiosity, I decided to try the middle golden toned ones and I must admit, it's love.
It's pretty difficult to describe but I think it's brown with golden tones through it. So it's essentially a golden brown. It has great staying power with a good primer underneath it and I love using it with a little bit of 'Creep' in the outer corner. With a bit of careful application, you can create a lovely daytime smokey eye look or layer it with other eyeshadows for a great night time look. With my pesky (non) eyelids, the pigmentation of the eyeshadow means it can look slightly sloppy if I don't make sure it goes where it is supposed to go.
If you tend to stick to your usual eyeshadows, I urge you to look again at some of the other unsung heroes because you may just find your diamond amongst the mess!
